Screencast Tools

Posted by bryanzug - 2008/02/04

Since I get asked a lot, here’s my rundown of screencast tools —

PC – Camstudio: Free and can get you started

PC – Camtasia: $299 but has bells and whistles that most people want after doing it for a while (e.g. pan and scan)

PC – Captivate: $699. Like powerpoint on steroids, lets you capture screen sequences and create demos or interactive simulations — then outputs Flash movies that you can put on the web (.swf) or edit in the Flash IDE when installed on the same machine (.fla).

Mac – iShowU: $20

Mac – Snapz Pro: $69

Mac – Screencast: $29. Here’s a recent review of this third Mac tool in relation to the first two.
